    I've been searching for ideas to tilt back my little Eden 112XLT. It seems that most of the folks on here prefer to carry an extra stand with them. I'm looking for something I can affix to my cab. I like to keep my rig as quick and easy to load as possible.
    All I've found are the Fender tilt-back legs, and the idea to put a metal amp handle on the bottom to prop up the front end of the cab.
    Can anyone recommend other options to point my cabinet at my head without having to carry a separate piece of gear?
    Much appreciated, you beautiful little babies.

    I use a screwed-on folding door stopper to prop up the front edge of my home built cab.
    There are two rubber feet on the bottom rear side, so the cab is essentially a tripod.
    It's quite stable. I use furniture cups, attached to the cab's top side (in its playing position,
    as opposed to the cab's carrying and storage position), for my amp's feet to sit in, and be secure.

  3. Take cardboard tube and saw through at an angle. Cut to lengths. Tie together and stow in cab port.

    Well. I'll give this a whirl for a bit and see how it feels at gigs.
    Just a big hinge from home depot, mounted backwards with a wood shim to make room for the pin.

    It doesn't tilt back as far as I'd like, but maybe as more time goes by more ideas will come!

    Around $20.

    Yep. He did. But his main requirement was easy to haul. This doesn't take up nearly as much room as a stand. You can literally stick it in your pocket. And it sets up in literally 3 seconds. And it's $20.

    Seems cheap and easy.

    Your cab's recessed handle will do the same thing except in the horizontal orientation. I'd try using the recessed handle or your hinge with something under it to give a steeper angle. Good luck, Bob

    Yup. I tried that first. Didn't get much tilt out of it. I was able to get the hinge back a bit farther.
